My name is Susan. I have a totally nerdy love of simplicity and living well.

I am a registered dietitian nutritionist and have a love of helping people make peace with food,  plant-forward cooking and eating, and living in the now. I graduated Saint Louis University with a Bachelor's in Nutrition and Dietetics and a Master's in Nutrition and Physical Performance. I am published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine regarding the role of dietary acid on human performance, and am a certified pilates instructor. I am experienced in disease state management, weight concerns, eating disorders, sports nutrition, and family feeding dynamics. 

I started Yellowbird, a non-diet nutrition coaching, plant-forward cooking, and pilates service, to quell the endless "shoulds" of eating and exercise,  patterns of negative self-talk around food and body,  and the time-isn't-on-my-side-I-can't-cook-food-I-actually-like debacle. We'll work together to empower you in your practice of awareness, connection, and creating nourishing, pleasureable food.

We believe connection is the root of satisfied living. Our hope is that Yellowbird helps you live in greater connection and nourishes your mind, body, and soul. Want to get started? Say hello.
